RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -- February 12, 2013

Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics
Corporation, today announced its next-generation TC191W and TC241W thin-client
and NC191 and NC241 zero-client cloud displays. The latest lines combine VDI
and desktop virtualization for simple and highly secure access to a business
cloud, which customers are increasingly depending on for essential
information.

"We are seeing that a growing amount of IT capability will be based in a
variety of business clouds during the next few years," according to Robert
Mahowald, research VP at IDC. "Our recent NA CloudTrack survey (summer 2012,
n=801) data show that by mid-2014, businesses expect to devote nearly 34% of
their IT resources to hosted cloud solutions, public and private, and 21% to
building private clouds in their datacenters, while spending less (33%, a
decrease of 12% in spending over 2012-2014) on traditional datacenter-based IT
deployments. Clearly customers are moving their key assets to cloud
architectures of various types, and business users will depend on secure and
reliable access."

Olympic Medical Center is one such organization that has built a virtual
environment with Samsung’s NC-Series zero-client cloud displays to support
fast and secure electronics health record adoption by its physicians.
“Transitioning to Samsung’s cloud displays enabled us to centralize essential
applications while maintaining patient data security,” said Sean Johnson,
information systems manager at Olympic Medical Center. “The new workflow is
significantly faster for our physicians and has cut dictation and chart
completion time while providing a slim clutter-free solution.”

Seamless Virtualization

Both the TC-and NC-Series cloud displays provide integrated connectivity to
business clouds via desktop virtualization technology, therefore eliminating
the need for a bulky PC with excessive IT administration costs. As sensitive
information is centralized and secured in a business cloud, the user
environment is easier to deploy, maintain and manage while minimizing exposure
to security risks.

The NC-Series allows organizations to easily migrate to a VDI cloud,
increasing productivity, strengthening protection of sensitive data and
streamlining IT costs. Certified for optimal use with VMware View, the NC
Series displays have built-in access technology using the latest Teradici
Tera2 chipset technology. The NC-Series also features SoC (System-on-Chip)
technology, which reduces the desktop attack surface while nearly completely
eliminating the need for client-side administration.

The TC-Series cloud displays are flexible thin clients with a wide range of
desktop virtualization access components built-in, allowing users to connect
to a variety of hosted cloud environments. From a familiar Windows interface,
users can toggle between published Citrix applications, access a virtual
desktop from their VMware server, or login to a corporate HR site from the
local IE web browser. With Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES 7) pre-installed,
users get the simplicity of a thin client with PC-like utility.

Functionality is expanded by allowing administrators to add local software
requisites to drive peripherals like web cams or printers, and to install
local utilities needed for unified communications. With all of this
flexibility users can still retain the simplicity and security of a
traditional thin client. Since the primary purpose of TC-Series display is
cloud access, the software image has been streamlined to reduce client-side
administration. And the advanced write filtering software can secure endpoints
in a read-only state with just a click of a button.

Streamlined Workspace

Available in 19- and 23.6-inch models, both the TC- and NC-Series cloud
displays are designed to eliminate bulky PCs from the workspace and seamlessly
blend into an office interior. By integrating hardware and cabling into the
display, this sleek design minimizes clutter. This clean design is convenient
for attaching a second display to the digital video output to improve
productivity or plug a notebook into the video-input for temporary use as a
monitor.

A wide, 170-degree viewing angle and Samsung’s Magic Angle technology allows
for easy viewing of the screen - no matter the vantage point - and the 150mm
height-adjustable stand enables users to comfortably place the display at a
height and tilt suited to their computing needs. A 90-degree pivot function
and wall-mounting capability make them ideal for specialized workplace
environments like healthcare, education, government and financial
institutions.

For a superior visual experience, both cloud displays have advanced encoding
and decoding for processing multimedia content and high quality images
practical for graphic design (CAD) and 3D rendering.

Tactile selection and function buttons are also incorporated into the design,
making it easy to adjust settings and power the display on and off. A single
button press can power off the display and server connection, making energy
conservation a simple and easy process.

Price and Availability

The new TC-Series thin-client (TC191W and TC241W) and NC-Series zero-client
cloud access displays (NC191 and NC241) can be ordered today starting around
$477 (actual prices may vary). All Samsung displays can be found at select
Samsung resellers and channel partners. Local availability can be determined
